Notes

The Story of This Soundboard:

This SBD comes from Vince Perrotti who gave it to Peter Hedeman with following notes: "This was my 18th birthday and a friend of mine was allowed to patch in. He gave me the boards on the 18th. It was a great show, especially for those of us who made the trip up on 11.25.78 when Jerry fell ill." Vince also mentioned that "I noticed as time went by that no one had these boards. I know January '79 boards are rare and I caught 8 shows that month and they were all smoking." So, thanks, Vince!

Notes:

I have no idea what EQ was done to the master cassette source.

The beginning of Shakedown Street is marred by soundboard glitches and adjustments. At about 45 seconds, it finally gave out until 1:25 or so. The 0:40 gap was patched with Source # 12200. Another gap of about 1.8 seconds a 10:33 was patched with the same source.

A tape flip 9:16 into Eyes of the World was also patched with about 20 seconds of Source #12200, and the audience provides the last minute or two of NFA through the end of the show. Several other glitches were smoothed over, adjusted, repaired or finegaled. You won't notice them.

The audience is just a hair slower than the SBD. I didn't alter the tempo of either recording, however. The difference is really not noticeable when strung together this way, although the patch in Eyes is not great, but that's really because the cassette tape wasn't moving steadily yet.

The checksums for the tracks on disc 3 do not match those for Source # 12200. Patching track by track introduces SBE's, you know?

Enjoy!

What a fun show! I am sure the original was quite wonderful, however I was only 6 at the time. Lotsa room to dance and I did. During Peggy-O I was front stage right and was spinning the entire song, delightful. Eyes, always gets me. For the third verse I had to stop dancing and hold the rail at stage left. "Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own." That always gets me Farklempt, Anyways, this note you just read, and I just wrote, wasn't a review of the *Grateful Dead's* performance, merely of the set list and Dark Star Orchestra's interpretation thereof. I look forward to hearing the genuine article!
